Salzburger Festspiele 2016 | Richard Strauss: Die Liebe der Danae
With Richard Strauss’ penultimate, satirically mythological opera Die Liebe der Danae (The Love of Danae) after a draft by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, the Salzburg Festival continues its series of operas by the Festival founders Hofmannsthal and Strauss with the Wiener Philharmoniker under the baton of Franz Welser-Möst.
